From BEST IN TEXAS MUSIC MAGAZINE August 26th - Katie Keys:
Deryl Dodd knocked 'em dead recently at Buck's Birthday Bash at the Crystal Palace in Bakersfield, CA; a celebration of what would have been Buck Owens' 80th birthday. Deryl's latest single is a cover of the Buck Owens classic "Together Again." Apparently, when the Owens family heard Deryl's amazing cover of "Together Again", they invited him to be part of this year's Bash. Headlining the show were Lee Ann Womack and Michelle Branch (formerly of The Wreckers).
Deryl performed 4 songs (backed by Buck's legendary Buckeroos) - his big hit on Columbia Records "That's How I Got To Memphis," Merle Haggard's "The Way I Am", "New Tony Lamas" (which brought the house down!!) and what was easily the highlight of the evening, Deryl's soulful rendition of "Together Again."
